Tanu Weds Manu fame Krsna whose name is without a vowel had imprinted a huge mark as a composer in his first film. He had also won RD Burman Award at Filmfare Awards 2012 for his brilliant music. So it was obvious for music lovers to wait for his second film with high expectations.
1.Jhooth Boliya – Singer: Kamal Khan; Lyrics: Vayu
The album starts with this peppy track which has nice beats, nice singing and awesome lyrics. The lyrics are a satire on the political India and Vayu has written it brilliantly. Kamal khan’s vocals are perfect for a song like this. Krsna has composed it with full groove and excitement. A must listen!
2.Daru Peeke Nachna – Singers: Mika Singh, Shreya Ghoshal; Lyrics: Subhash Kapoor
The song is a desi Punjabi track with no exciting elements. The starting notes are quite nice and it slightly resembles with an old hit song. But except the starting notes, there’s nothing listenable and you would feel agitated after some time. Shreya has tried saving this but due to weak composition, it doesn’t appeal at all.
3.Ajnabi – Singers: Mohit Chauhan, Shreya Ghoshal; Lyrics: Subhash Kapoor
This is the track which would make you feel relax as it signifies the awesomeness left in Krsna’s compositions. The song’s starting notes would give you a retro feel and soon it turns out to be a fresh melody. Subhash’s lyrics have a significant role here which is comic and sarcastic. Mohit and Shreya are perfect and Mohit’s drag of the word Ajnabi is brilliant. The chalo chalo part sounds too odd but still the pace of the song remains there. It’s a “WELCOME”.
4.Hans Ki Chaal – Singer: Kailash Kher; Lyrics: Shubhash Kapoor
Here Krsna and Shubhash both have tried to make the song sound wacky and amusing but they completely failed. Kailash Kher is not perfect too. He has sung it quite hard and the voice modulation that was much needed was missing. Krsna lost his brilliant image with this song. it’s a “GET OUT”.
5.L Lag Gaye / Law Lag Gaye – Singer: Bappi Lahiri; Lyrics: Shubash Kapoor
The song is a one-time listen. It’s an amusing track only because of Bappi Lahiri’s energetic vocals. The way he says “samjhe!” it surely would create interest in the listener at the starting of the song. The hook line gets well deserving applaud but when we overlook the whole song it definitely sounds fatigue and you would soon lost interest in that. There seemed to be no reason of releasing two songs with the same lyrics, same music, same singing just the letter L replaced by Law, but since they actually did, they made this album worse.
Jolly LLB is an ordinary soundtrack with no Krsna effect and the listeners would feel bored after one or two time listen. Krsna did an awesome debut, hope he would return back next time with some good melodies and nice grooves.
The Final Verdict: OKAY
